The internship is great and the management is actually taking in my suggestions. My tasks are basically one task – to do the villa marketing online and talk to arriving guests, so I try as much as possible give feedback to how the company is working, their current marketing and how to interact with guests from West. Now I have had long talks with first guests and have a lot more suggestions. I like working on my own and telling specifically what should be improved.
I didn’t even have a culture shock maybe because I had read so much and was prepared. After a week, felt like a local eating, living.
Indonesia so far seems not so cheap as I thought and read before coming here, probably because of the gas subsidy cuts. But overall I like talking with local people, hanging out together when they actually are willing. We all the time eat in local warungs, see untouristy/touristy spots. Transporting local style and so on.
